BEST ELECTRIC SKATEBOARD COLLECTION FOR YOU
- Hammock stands material
If you prefer a metal hammock stand, steel will be the most common option. Many metal hammock stands are often adjustable and even equipped with wheels to enhance portability and convenience. Compared with wooden hammock stands, they usually have a more linear and bolder look. Besides, always remember to look for hammock stands with a rust-resistant coating if you decide to pick metal ones.
On the other hand, wooden hammock stands are made from moisture-resistant and durable hardwood, like cedar or bamboo. Unlike metal stands, wooden ones offer various looks, depending on the stain or oil and the wood type. While rich-toned and sturdy wood can create a feeling of solid support, a lighter one gives you a relaxed and casual vibe.

- Key features
Firstly, the hammock stands should be compatible with your hammocks’ spreader bars, which are long bars placed at each end of the hammock to make the cloth tauter. Remember that hammock stands with spreader bars are more likely to tip. Ones without spreader bars may be better choices if you want to enjoy your nap in the hammock very often.
Secondly, many free-standing hammock stands are adjustable for different lengths, while some can only work with one particular length. So adjustable hammock stands are often more flexible and convenient.
Thirdly, if you dream about enjoying the breeze in your hammock at any place, you can consider hammock stands with wheels, which are highly convenient, especially when the stands are heavy and large. You can also choose collapsible hammock stands made out of lightweight aluminum. They can easily break down into several portable parts for your travel or camping.
To measure your hammock length, you need to lay it flat and measure the actual length, which should not include any rope or suspension straps.
